Bua Nó Bás

Three boards on the Falls Road, Belfast. The first pays homage to Óglaigh na hÉireann (IRA) by mixing ornate knotwork and Celtic imagery of a dolmen and warrior with sword with a volley of pistol and rifle; the second is a list of “local republican POWs”, almost identical to the list in Beechmount POWs (for a list of names see, 1995 Disband RUC); the third links the revolutionaries of 1916 with the armed struggle “1916-1997”.

Ireland – Catalonia

“Not Spain, not France. Free Catalonia. Since 1714 the Catalan nation is military [sic] occupied for the Spanish and French states. Catalonia has their own culture, language, and history. Our country have [sic] more than 1000 years of history as a nation. The Catalan flag is the first European flag. Our fight flag is the “Estalada”. The white star means the freedom, and the blue triangle stands for the sky of humanity. Free Catalonia! United Ireland! El nostre dia arribarà! Tiócfaidh [sic] ár lá. 11/8/97″ Beechmount Avenue, Belfast.
